I Am a Night Owl

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 65,038 People

    Obviously. It's 2 am

    and I am wide awake. My "accidental" nap I had at 10 pm probably didn't help thingz much. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one up at this hour... The silence is nice, but trying to sleep during the noisy day stinks most days.

    It's that kind of night

    where I'm tired, but I don't want to sleep! But I'm too tired to actually do anything. Sigh! This is almost every night for me. either this, or I just can't sleep cause I'm not tired lol. Never a normal night!

    I hate having to be diurnal,

    I much prefer night time, less people around, it's nice a cool outside when the day has been hot, it's quieter and I can avoid crowds. Just a shame that nothing is open and life stands in the way of being nocturnal.

    I have this really messed up sleeping cycle.

    I have tried so many things. And I just can't fall asleep, my usual time to stay up, even on school days, is 2-4am. I have tried reading, melatonin, meditation, thinking, and just plain sitting in the dark. If anyone has any other ideas, please tell me

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...

    For some reason, I spend all evening wasting

    time online, then I decide midnight is a good time to start cleaning the house. I should really just go to sleep

    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    I have trouble sleeping at night.

    And though i wish i was snoring and up in the clouds, i do appreciate my night with reading and listening to Gospel music. Best time to meditate is at night. God is good!

    I don't really fully wake up

    until 6 in the evening. That's when I have energy. I lay awake while my family sleeps at night. I am my best me at night. I'm more creative when the sun goes down and the world stops for a moment.

    why do they call it being a "night owl".

    .. why not a "night elephant" or "night snail"?

    I pretty much have always been a night owl.

    I remember even when I was little and we lived with my grandparents I would wait until the house got quiet and sneak up and play with my toys and end up falling asleep in the family room/play room. I never could sleep much at night I always start to get sleepy as morning starts...

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    When I'm at school, my brain is dead.

    But when the night comes around, I suddenly transform into a genius. How can this happen???

    Urgh.. What's worse than staying up all

    night; is the fact that you struggle and fight just to fall asleep, only to toss and turn for the next 4/5 hours and wake up at the tiniest noise!! and then not being able to get back to sleep.... Hmm :/ stupid brain!!!!

    All of my creative juices brew in the night.

    I amaze myself with the ideas I come up with at this hour. I don't know if I should be excited or terrified of what might come out of this o.O

    I just wanna jump out my window

    and into the night, breathing in the thick air. Looking up at the stars and walking along the street, everyone asleep. It's good to be an insomniac sometimes.
